Despite there being more people in the Redlands and we can communicate more effectively than ever, statistics show that people are feeling increasingly lonely.

We will look at 2 Peter 3:18, and this will be the first sermon dealing with this text. There will be a second sermon to follow., at a later date. One of the worst things that can happen to a mother must be when she is told by the nurse at the clinic: Your baby
As Aussies we are given so much to be thankful for in our part of the world. Aussies who have accepted the gospel have a share in an even greater gift – the promise of eternal life with our Creator. Is it possible for us to value these promises and gifts of God more than
Joseph had a dream laid upon him from God. He proceeded to share this dream with his brothers who then in turn hated him for it. What dream is God putting in your heart. How are you going to deal with any ridicule you get when you share it.
It is with much thankfulness to God, that one of our leaders of the orphanage, Israel was able to get his visa application approved and be our special guest at church this Sunday. Israel will be sharing God’s word with us both in the morning and evening services.
“The Law of the Lord is perfect, reviving the soul” speaks the Psalmist. You may wonder why King David can speak so highly of God’s law that he says we should even meditate on it continually. This Sunday morning we will look at Psalm 19 to see what the Psalmist is talking about and discover
We were all saddened by the tragic loss of life in the recent house fire at Slacks Creek. At the same time I was deeply humbled by the outpouring of praise to God in the midst of such a tragedy. While many will question why a loving God would allow this to happen or even
Some months ago we looked at some important New Testament teaching as regards the wonderful truth that each Christian is indwelt by the Spirit of God. When a person believes in Christ as Lord and Saviour, the Spirit ‘moves’ into that person’s life, to – as it were – claim that person for the Kingdom
Today is Father’s Day, a happy occassion where we take time to honour and thank the men in our lives to whom we owe so much. Yet despite the joys and successes of fatherhood we celebrate today, the cost of ‘fatherlessness’ in our culture is simply HUGE! In terms of dollars and cents, research estimates
What the church needs is……! Why don’t our politicians do something about….! If it were up to me I would…! Self-proclaimed know-alls, arm chair critics sideline spectators …everybody knows one…or two or three…! We really need people who will get in and do something to fix a situation or solve a problem.

Sunday evening we begin a series in the book of Daniel. It begins with a report of God’s apparent defeat, at least that is how it would have seemed at the time. We live in a time where many claim God’s defeat. The church is on the way out, it has had it’s day. HowRead More +
Today we begin a sermon series in the book of Romans. Many people consider Romans to be Paul’s most profound, detailed explanation of the Christian faith.

In these verses Paul finishes exposing our great problem as humans and the various ways it shows up. In chapter one we saw people in open rebellion, at the beginning of chapter 2 Paul exposed the self righteous, this week he looks at people who appear to be following God, but are still living inRead More +
This morning Israel will bring us a message from Genesis 3. Chapter 3 tells the story of that paradise lost; the result of the first willful human sin. The consequences: immediate shame and lifelong separation from their home with God. Come listen to Israel as he deals with the question ‘Where Are You?’Read More +
In Romans last week we were reminded that the gospel is God’s power to bring salvation to all people. As we speak it to other, God will transform lives.
